Diesel Fan Drives, Do They Save Fuel? 740595

A method for measuring diesel fuel consumption accurately over short distances of 5 miles or less was developed so that many fan-on, fan-off data sets could be gathered in a short time for statistical evaluation and analysis. A second test sequence involved fan-on, fan-off fuel economy tests over a highway route for comparison against the Cummins Vehicle Mission Simulation Computer Program. The predicted results from this program agreed substantially with the actual highway economy test data we obtained. More than 4 million charted miles of roads throughout the world are available through this program for predicting fan-off fuel savings. Results on several typical routes are given.
